A known gangster probably thought he could get away with anything that he even sought the help of the police to carry out his “perfect” crime. The 46-year-old man, surnamed Fung, hid himself at an amusement games center in Kwai Chung with the intention of stealing the day’s earnings when everyone had left, Headline Daily reports.

 

Around midnight of Thursday, when the guard had locked the premises and left, Fung emerged from his hiding place and proceeded to the cash register where he snapped up about HK$54,000. Unknown to him, the 34-year-old owner of the place surnamed Kwok, was monitoring the shop through a surveillance camera connected to his home computer. Upon seeing an intruder helping himself to the store’s earnings he rushed back to his shop. When Fung heard the door open he immediately thought of a way to wiggle out of the tight spot.

 

He called 999 and reported that he just woke up after falling asleep inside the shop and found himself locked up. He also hid the stolen money in between the gaming machines and waited. When Kwok saw him inside the shop Fung confronted the owner and blamed him for locking up a customer. Kwok knowing that Fung was a gangster said sorry and allowed him to leave. He then called the police and reported that the money inside the cash register was missing. When the police arrived they received a call from Fung who said he had left and asked them to “close the file” about his getting locked up. The police officers asked Fung to come back to help tie up a few loose ends in the case. Fung obliged, and was arrested when he arrived.

The gangster didn't think this one through. The owner was really clever in having a video surveillance system in place.

A gangster-thief named Fung thought he was smart but in the end he was outsmarted by a shop owner named Kwok ... this incident served as a lesson for other thieves who thought they are clever but in reality they are not.
